Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Jonesport, Maine
July 17, 2015
I think the cottage we stayed in was 'the other one.' The owner has two, and I messed up on dates and he obligingly accommated us in the other, since the one posted was taken. The view is indeed spectacular, the cottage is homey, and the owner very helpful
Sharing of Paradise
July 12, 2015
Upon arriving at the cottage, we walked around to the back which is the main entrance and WOW! are breath was taken away. The most amazing, beautiful view of the great North Atlantic and all the little islands in front of us! We knew that the next 10 days were going to be paradise. A much needed peaceful vacation. That does not begin to describe our experience at Doug and Joan's cottage. The cottage was the perfect size for us and was totally equipped with all you will need for your stay. Nothing was lacking. It is very clean and rustic, but perfect. While there we would sit outside and just absorb the sites,sounds and smells of the ocean. As I am writing this review my husband has just said, "I just loved it there honey, it was the most peaceful vacation we have ever had"! I would have to agree, after 41 years of marriage and seeing many wonderful places, this is the place we want to come back to. We saw the eagles on Bar Island across from the cottage, also seals and loons. The smell of the sea roses with the morning dew on them in the yard when you first came out in the morning was intoxicating. We were able to see the full moon rise directly in front of the cottage that was mesmerizing. We spent every moment we could outside. In the evening we watched movies that Doug has supplied in the cottage, movies we have not seen in years, played games outside. We went into town a lot and the local people there are the friendliest people on earth I swear. We were able to see the famous Lobster Boat races and the wonderful 4th of July parade. Did I mention the fog, oh it comes and goes and is the most refreshing feeling. The sun shone everyday but fog would roll in and out,,,Loved it. We cooked almost every night with fresh seafood purchased from the local wharf's, just amazing the taste of freshness! If anyone is wanting peace, quiet, no shopping, no crowds with views to take your breath away, Doug and Joan's cottage is the place to be. Thank you both so much. Lynn and Jim
Gorgeous Ocean Views from a Lovely Cottage
July 2, 2015
My mother, sister and I just enjoyed a wonderful week at this Jonesport cottage. The views are stunning. The weather was lovely for most of the week but we even thoroughly enjoyed a rainy day watching the waves crashing on the islands. The cottage has everything you need, including a grill, outside chairs and table and wifi. There is plenty to do with side trips to Beals Island, Machias, Lubec, Campobello Island, and Acadia National Park. We wish we lived closer so we could come back soon!

Perfect Getaway from City Life
October 8, 2014
This is a small no frills cottage with a spectacular view right outisde your door. The lack of T.V., internet , and busy city life helps to free your mind and sit back and enjoy the view and quietness surrounding you. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and has very helpful tips for places to go and eat right in the town.

The cottage was the perfect location for a quiet getaway. Far enough away from the crowds of Bar Harbor, but not too far that you could not get down there for a full day of whale watching and a trip up Cadillac Mountain. The view was spectacular, and the beach combing kept my family occupied for several trips out to the island. The cottage was cozy for four, but we didn't spend any long days there as we were out and about most of the time. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very suitably decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and dishes and there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the coast, but wants to avoid the crowds.
Quiet and serene

Had a very enjoyable relaxing, quiet week at this cottage. The cottage is adorable and perfect for 2 people. We love this area, so it was a perfect spot for us. Even the few days of rainy weather didn't take away from our vacation. We enjoyed the area fishermen, and the best rolls (lobster and crab) at the Bayview Take Out. We would come back in a minute!!! Thanks for having this piece of heaven available for others to enjoy! Karen and Lucien

Another wonderful Vacation!
July 28, 2014
We were lucky enough to come once again to stay here! The cottage was everything a person who is looking for some peace and quiet and gorgeous ocean views could want! We walked out to the island on the sandbar at low tide 3 different times during the week! Loved it! The cottage is well-furnished and decorated perfectly for it's location! Great seafood take-out near by if you don't feel like cooking! We will be back again! One of us has a bad back, so we bring a 3 inch memory foam pad for the double bed. Does the trick!
Cottage by the sea
October 1, 2013
An amazing place to stay. The views and wildlife are incredible. Wonderful sunrises and sunsets almost daily. There are many places located within an hours drive to go to hike, picnic, and to explore the local culture. The owner is very easy to work with. There are some really good restaurants located close by. The cottage has a good library. We cannot wait to go back.

My husband and I decided to stay here for our honeymoon. I saw the pictures online and fell in love, but wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived. We arrived there at 3 am so it was hard to see the view. That morning when we woke up and looked outside, I was in awe. It was so beautiful and everything that I was hoping it would be! The cottage is cute and great for a couple and is also equipped with all the amenities you would need. We went hiking to the island in the bay one day. It was fun and a great view from the island. Most of the time we traveled to Bar Harbor which was about an hour and a half away. There's tons to do there, whale watching, tons of shopping, great restaurants, Acadia Nat'l Park.... It was a great visit and we plan on coming back next year and hopefully years after that to stay in the cottage. Awesome experience!

This place is magic.
August 21, 2013
We spent an amazing week in early July in this spot. It couldn't have been more ideal. Each morning we woke to the sound of lobster boats trolling just off shore. Coffee on the porch, taking in the most spectacular view, which even included a bald eagle one morning. The cabin itself is perfect for a couple or an individual -- very comfortable, clean, and cozy. Day trips north to Eastport and south to Bar Harbor are an easy drive, but we could have easily spent the entire week reading at the cabin and hiking nearby. Doug, the owner, is a stand up guy and the whole rental process was a breeze. We are definitely coming back!

Just returned from a relaxing week in Jonesport, Maine. The cottage was perfect for the 3 of us. It had everything that we needed for the week and couldn't have been a more perfect place . As I sit at home today, I still picture this amazing view. These thoughts of this perfect ocean cottage and its view will get me through the upcoming winter. I hope to return soon.
Very nice place
August 5, 2013
I stayed in the cottage for two weeks. I like everything. The cottage is comfortable enough. The view from the deck is outstanding. Very quiet and peaceful place. I visited Acadia Park, Canada, Eastport and Lubec. Everything is very close. The only minus was that I did not catch any fish. Instead I ate lobsters every other day. Softshells $2.50 per pound directly from the sea. They were wonderful.
July 11, 2013
We had a real vacation away from all the usual and spent quality time together, walking the beach, climbing the island and rocks,exploring and going to Acadia and Bar Harbor. A wonderful get-a-way.

Absolutely perfect spot
September 11, 2012
My husband and I visited in August and spent a week in this perfect little cottage. It was spotlessly clean and adorably cozy. We loved Jonesport and the surrounding area. We found the fisherman's coop (just the left of the bridge leading to Beal's Island) at the beginning of the week and visited it almost every day thereafter-- soft shell lobsters were $3 a pound. The very friendly fishermen were fun to talk to, as well. We did the hike on Great Wass Island, which we just happened to stumble on while exploring in the car-- it took about four hours and was GORGEOUS, one of our favorite memories of the week. We visited Bar Harbor a couple of times and went on a whale watch, which was fantastic. The cottage was a lovely home base for driving around the area or just staying at home-- we had one blissfully rainy day when we stocked up on firewood and had a cozy fire and did puzzles and read all day. We absolutely loved the place and can't wait to go back next summer!

the best getaway ever

I was so impressed with this little bit of heaven that I hated to leave. One of the best place ive ever visited. I want to spend more time there and want to go back. The hosts were outstanding. Nothing like waking up to see the ocean right from your bed. Fantastick place

Peace & Tranquility
July 17, 2012
We had no idea that such beauty could be available to ordinary folk like us. We enjoyed sunrises each morning, something we've longed to see for many years. No crowds, no traffic, a perfect spot for artists, photographers, writers and nature lovers. We purchased lobster from the co-op across from the Coast Guard station in town. Explored the beaches, walked to the island at low tide. Drove 25 minutes north to the University of Maine to enjoy live theatre. Cell phone service good at the cottage, no internet, no T.V. reception but we survived just fine without it. A trip into Bar Harbor gave us plenty of gift shops and people watching opportunities. We found the local shop owners in Jonesport to be friendly and full of good advice. Would we recommend this spot to our friends and family? ABSOLUTELY ! We are grateful to have had the chance to experience the Maine coast without the crowds and traffic. We were refreshed and renewed! Isn't that the way vacations should leave us?

Peace and quiet... with a view!
September 25, 2011
My husband and I just got back from a week at Cottage B and it was the perfect vacation location. The ocean views were spectacular, the lobster fresh from the Jonesport wharf and the cottage was well equipped. The location was great for day trips to Bar Harbour and Lubec for whale watching and sea kayaking. As first-time renters, Doug was excellent to work with answering all our questions. We would love to return and would recommend this cottage to those looking for peace and quiet... with a view!

we had a great time the cottage was nice and the view was awesome
August 29, 2011
We returned to Cottage B in early August to see and to enjoy the wild blueberries. And indeed they are everywhere - even in front of Cottage A! We drove south this time and especially enjoyed Milbridge (Fisherman's Wife Cafe was great for breakfast - skip the lobster roll) and the historical society's museum well worth the visit. Drove to Bar Harbor and did Cadillac Mountain (too crowded). Returned two days later via the water taxi from Winter Harbor (well worth it). Schoodic Peninsula very artsy and caught glimpses of the granite sculptures in Winter Harbor and Milbridge. Lobster every night from Smith's on Lobster Avenue and clams from Carver's on Beal Island were great. Tall Barneys is closed so there is no dining in Jonesport. Helen's in Machias was good. Found Joe's Sausage in Machias (follow the signs) and well worth the visit. He's originally from Vineland, NJ so we had lots to talk about. Makes his own sausage and has a large selection of italian cheeses, meats, olives and bread. Jonesport Library's Sunday concert was sold out, but you don't want to miss their displays and art work. Weather was a little rainy and cool so we enjoyed having the fireplace. We soaked up as much sun as possible on our last day. Found Angela's Ashes by Uncle Frank McCourt - good read. Hope to do it again next year!
Beautiful and Restful
July 8, 2011
The cottage B was beautiful and right on the water, with granite below so that you did not get any bad smell from low tide, as you would with some tidal flats. Other than our travel day, we had great weather the entire week. Close to an island that has a bar crossing for beach combing. Saw two glorious surises between 4:30 and 5 am. Lobster at the dock was very inexpensive and great tasting. The property has privacy with a fence on both sides and shares a common driveway with another cottage (A) You are between Mt Desert Island and Eastport (or Lubec), both are beautiful day trips. Very quaint and quiet. Forget TV, no reception, but who cares. Verizon has service, but no 3 or 4G network, so you can relax without email. Owners were very easy to schedule and work with and contact for any needs. If you want to relax, this is a good place to be.

Perfect for us
June 27, 2011
We had a lovely stay here for a week near the end of June. We loved scrambling along the rocks and beaches on either side of the cottage. If you go to the right (west) you can go on forever as far as we can tell. We walked for about 3 hours passing various beaches, coves and rock outcroppings and even an old falling down cottage which made for some great pics. You can also reach the island in front of the cottage at low tide. I should add that we are no spring chickens…we were there for our 30th wedding anniversary, but we are in reasonable shape. The summer solstice (longest day) occurred during our stay, so we got up and watched the sunrise at 4:30 in the morning…more great pics. You HAVE to visit the Sardine Museum on the way into town (Jonesport). It is a labour of love for the couple that run it. You will get a personal, and very informative and interesting tour. The man answered all our dumb questions like “What is the difference between a herring and a sardine?” You also HAVE to get some fresh lobster in town at the local co-op on the wharf. We took two day trips. Lubec is an hour to the north and has a burgeoning arts community. We had a great meal at the Water Street Tavern and Inn. You should go to the Quoddy Head lighthouse and hike the trail along the edge of the ocean (and eastern most point in the US) when you go. We missed Campobello Island (ran out of time), but that’s a major tourist attraction in the area and the bridge across is in Lubec. The other trip was to Bar Harbour and Acadia National Park an hour south. We highly recommend going on one of the interpretive tours in the park. One last hike that was also great was at the “Little Cape Point Trail/Mudhole Trail loop on Great Wass Island (bridge from Jonesport; follow “Nature Conservancy” signs). The coastline there was beautiful and quite gentle to walk along. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well maintained. There were lobster and fishing boats working right in front of the cottage. Caution...don't bring home as many rocks as we did!

Idyllic week in Jonesport, ME
September 5, 2010
We just returned from a week at Doug’s cottage in Jonesport, ME. When I called to book Doug mentioned that Jonesport is very peaceful and a quiet place to spend time. This was exactly what we were looking for and Jonesport really lived up to our expectations. The cottage itself is very comfortable and well-equipped. The views are breathtaking: uninterrupted views of the sea and islets nearby. We did three one-day hikes - on nearby Beals island in the Nature Conservancy area as well as Cutler Preserve trails. There was also an excellent day’s Kayaking and swimming in Bar Harbor. We bought locally grown vegetables and blueberries from the farms around Jonesport and fresh lobster off the pier on Lobster Ave. You should also go to Bohemian Mama’s cafe off route 1 nearby (signposted) for excellent coffee and sweet things. The Hannaford’s supermarket in Machias has a fantastic selection of organic produce. You should stay here if you are looking for a laid back relaxing time with the option for some energetic hiking, biking and the like if you have the inclination. Completely unpretentious (a big plus if you live in NYC like us!).
A rustic, charming retreat...
January 25, 2009
I'm not sure if it is the unspoiled way of life in Jonesport, the view (amazing!), the decor, the fireplace (we had one almost every night), or the distance between this world and my home, but I have never experienced a vacation as peaceful and regenerative as this one. Highly recommended!

The rental experience was absolutely wonderful. The cost was well with in reason, and the owners a pleasure to work with! I would recommend this location to anyone who wants to experience downeast Maine from the comfort of a cozy cottage on the ocean.
Beautiful little cottage by the ocean!

We stayed here for a week in Mid June. The cottage is absolutely adorable, and the sunrises are just fantastic. Lots of things to do in the area, and NOT overcrowded. The best of Maine! Excellent communications with owners! Had a wonderful time, and enjoyed the property very much!
Fantastic 2 weeks. Saw shy seals, hummingbirds, eagles, lots of ducks and loons.
Greeted each morning by lobster boats. Ate lots of blueberries. Had great lobsters from Looks Lobster Co. in Jonesport. Comfortable charming cabin.
Did daytrips to Bar Harbor, Campobello, and Saint Andrews.
Loved every minute of it.

This cottage exceeded our expectations! Had a great 25th wedding anniverary. Did all the touristy things - saw puffins - several lighthouses, Arcadia ....
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The sunrises from the deck are fantastic!
Thank you - we hope to be back again.

My husband and I enjoyed our 2 weeks at this patch of paradise. We enjoyed watching the eagle on the island and the lobster boats. What a surprise to see loons as well.
Ronald and Cora
My husband and I stayed here for seven days, it was great, the most peaceful place on earth. We got to see the eagle on the small island to the left. I woke up at 4:30 in the morning to see the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen.
